Praline-Pecan French Toast

This little short-order breakfast special gets an easy hands-off finish in the oven.

I fix this the night before and let it chill for 8 hours, get up the next morning and pop it in the oven. Perfect for those morning that I don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.
